The Power of Glutamine: Why Your Body Needs This Amino Acid

Glutamine is an amino acid that is vital to the human body. It is considered to be a conditionally essential amino acid, which means that under certain circumstances, the body may require more glutamine than it can produce. In the body, glutamine functions as a major nitrogen transporter and is critical for the maintenance of healthy nitrogen balance.* Glutamine also acts as the primary fuel for the rapidly growing cells of the immune system and GI tract.*

That’s a lot of science-y talk, but what does it all mean? Let’s break it down.

What is an Amino Acid?

Amino acids are organic molecules that are the building blocks of proteins. There are 20 amino acids that are found in nature, and out of those 20, 9 are considered to be essential for the human body. This means that our bodies cannot produce these 9 amino acids, and we must obtain them through our diet. The other 11 amino acids are considered to be non-essential because our bodies can produce them.

Glutamine is one of those non-essential amino acids. But as we will see, under certain circumstances, glutamine becomes essential.

What Does Glutamine Do in the Body?

As we mentioned before, glutamine plays an important role in transporting nitrogen around the body and helps to maintain healthy nitrogen balance.* It is also a key fuel source for rapidly growing cells such as those in the immune system and GI tract.* But glutamine also has some other important functions in the body including:

  • * Enhancing glycogen storage*
  • * Acting as an antioxidant*
  • * Supporting brain function*
  • * Helping wound healing*

When Should I take Glutamine? Generally speaking, if you are eating a balanced diet, you should be getting enough glutamine. But there are certain circumstances where your body may need more glutamine than it can produce, and supplementing with glutamine may be beneficial. These circumstances include:

  • *Intense physical activity or exercise* /li>
  • * Illness or trauma*
  • * Surgery*
  • * Stress*
  • * Limited food intake due to illness*
  • * Alcoholism*

So there you have it! Glutamine is an important amino acid that plays many vital roles in the human body. If you think you may be deficient in glutamine, talk to your doctor or healthcare provider about whether supplementing with this amino acid could be beneficial for you.

Suggested Usage: Take 1 capsule 1 to 3 times daily, preferably between meals.
